In the Description field, enter a short description that describes the purpose of the module. For example:
This module introduces you to the core concepts of Pega's Center-out Business Architecture. Employees and customers have a very different relationship with technology today. No longer passive consumers, they actively participate in shaping the tech experience and demand that it adapts in real-time with them. You need agility to react and change this quickly, across all channels and systems. And you need to maintain the ability to scale enterprise-wide.
The Duration field is automatically calculated based on the total duration of all the topics and the module quiz.
Use learning objectives to communicate specifically what students should be able to do after completing the module. Learning objectives can be based on knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Learning objectives define learning outcomes, and help to clarify, organize, and prioritize learning. Learning objectives are measurable and quantifiable.
To add learning objectives:
- In the first Learning objective field, enter the learning objective. For example, Configure Pega Call to use a Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) or Map CTI properties to Pega Call properties.
- Click Add another item to add additional learning objectives.
Close with a period as the objectives are technically clauses. Include regardless of content (whether the objectives are sentence fragments or full clauses).
Add terms from Training Library to indicate if the module is a specific type of training. For example, Sales training, Corporate training, or UAP training.
